Triangle threat for DeMbare


DYNAMOS have not been feeling at home at the National Sports Stadium in this year’s Premier Soccer League campaign.

The giant stadium has become a fertile hunting ground for visiting teams with ZPC Kariba and Buffaloes emerging with shocking wins from there.

The only two wins Dynamos have recorded on home soil include capitalising on Harare City’s lethargic form to seal a 3-1 victory as well as a last gasp win over FC Platinum, scrapped from a poor showing.

Struggling Triangle will visit them this afternoon and pose another home humiliation that could further dent DeMbare’s title defence. No team has ever won over the other with their two meetings last season ending in draws.

Team manager Richard Chihoro was aware of the potential upset.

“This league has no small team,” Chihoro said. “Last week Chiredzi United taught us that when we visited them in our last game. Every team is good, so we know we can fall. We have not been that good at home, so there is just need for a change in attitude. But we have good chances of winning on Sunday (today).”

Dynamos are still hit by injuries with Devon Chafa, Anesu Gondo, Tafadzwa Rusike, Masimba Mambare and Tawanda Muparati not yet fit.

They have so far dropped 11 points this term which has put them in danger of denying them a fourth successive league title. But Triangle, who are three points from the bottom are not buying into that.
